Former Obama adviser with Islamist ties floats theory that Trump was behind NYC bombing

Former Obama adviser with Islamist ties floats theory that Trump was behind NYC bombing

Pot, meet kettle. A man who produced a number of pro-terrorist tweets back when he was a member of the Obama adminstraton has taken to Twitter again, this to weigh in on the New York City bombing Saturday.

Mohamed Elibiary served as a Department of Homeland Security adviser to the president through September of 2014 when he was dismissed for having tweeted out his admiration for the Muslim Brotherhood and support for Islamism.

Yesterday, he posted the following message to his Twitter account (which is still active!):

Trending: Adam Schiff’s Russia expert ‘ringer’ worked with Steele, wrote ‘Russian interference’ piece in July 2016, and has usual connections

It’s hard to say what is most noxious about this conspiracy theory coming from this particular cretin, but maybe authorities would be wise to look more deeply at Elibiary’s potential ties to the suspect, who has been identified as Ahmad Khan Rahami.
